Ejector Pump Services

Having an ejector pump in your home is an important step in preventing sewage from flooding your basement. Homes that have bathrooms or washing machines in the basement are susceptible to flooding. By having an ejector pump installed, you could prevent major damage from happening. If you need ejector pump repair, replacement or installation, we’re the company for you.

Vern’s Plumbing is proud to specialize in the repair, replacement and installation of ejector pumps for the communities of Culpeper, VA. While these pumps aren’t always the most glamorous devices to have in your house, it’s beneficial to have them when the flooding begins. Many homes are susceptible to sewage flooding, and having an ejector pump is the way to fix that.

What Is An Ejector Pump?

Ejector pumps are like sump pumps, but these devices push out sewage flooding while sump pumps push out other forms of groundwater. These pumps are also installed in a sump basin on your basement floor and work to push flooding sewage out of your home. Ejector pumps remove waste water from areas like basement toilets, sinks and appliances, and floor drains that lead to the main sewer line.

Greywater is also another form of wastewater that ejector pumps remove, and this is water that comes from the drains in the upper levels of your home. While this water doesn’t contain any human waste, it mostly contains particles of other matter such as food, hair, cleaning products and more. 

These pumps are also covered with a lid due to the handling of greywater or processing wastewater that has human waste. A vent pipe is always attached to the sealed lid to allow the sewer gasses to vent from the system. The discharge line connects to the ejector pump and runs into the sanitary sewer line that then carries the waste to the municipal sewer or your private septic tank.

Ejector Pump Repair

Because ejector pumps work with harsh substances, like sewage, they’re prone to more frequent breakdowns and failures. Many issues can come about with these sewer ejector pumps, and it’s important to work fast to get these problems fixed. Some problems that your ejector pump may experience are:

  • A broken switch
  • Clogged lines
  • Blocked discharge lines
  • Improper installation

If you begin to notice that your ejector pump is not working the way it should, it’s in your best interest to call the professionals immediately. Vern’s Plumbing is proud to be Culpeper’s best ejector pump repair company, and we’re ready to get your pump repaired in no time. You don’t want to deal with sewage flooding and a broken ejector pump, so call us as soon as possible!

Ejector Pump Replacement

These pumps can last for a long time, but with continual use, they’re bound to fail or run into issues eventually. What’s important to know is when it’s best to get a completely new ejector pump. Anyone who’s gone through the troubles of a sewage problem before knows how important it is to ensure that your sewage system is running smoothly. 

Ejector pumps last about 10 years in your home. Replacing your ejector pump in your home rather than continuously repairing it is a more cost-effective and less stressful way of preventing sewage problems that may happen in the future. Some signs that it’s time to replace your ejector pump are:

  • An abundance of dirty water
  • The pump having trouble starting
  • The pump failed to turn on at all
  • Continuous, unnecessary cycles
  • Odd noises while running

When you begin to notice that your ejector pump is showing any of these signs, call the professionals immediately to get your ejector pump replaced. It may seem like a hassle, but it’s beneficial in the long run. You can relax knowing that your brand new ejector pump is working the way it should, especially if Vern’s Plumbing installed it!
